I'm running the NYC Marathon to Prevent Gun Violence!
May 15, 2017
BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
Why am I so passionate about raising money to end gun violence? One word: Newtown. That awful attack took place 4 days before my twins turned 6, the same age as many of the victims, so it really hit home. I read all the articles and I upped my donations to gun safety advocacy organizations, but I always hoped to do more.
And then I got the email about an opportunity to support Sandy Hook Promise by doing something else I always wanted to do: run the NYC marathon. This year, I hope to achieve both goals and raise $3,000 in advance of crossing the finish line.
Hopefully, this effort will inspire you and others to give so that, together, we can ensure that no mother or father ever experiences what the parents of 20 children in Newtown experienced on December 14, 2012.
I promise to do my part.
